US Election 2020 and Who Is Leading It

 

With only three days to go for Election Day on November 3, Joe Biden is marginally ahead of Republican President Donald Trump in the key states although, there have been some narrow lead in a few states.

In Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, where Mr. Trump won by thin margins in 2016, Joe Biden is leading by five percentage points in these areas. The race is much closer to the state of Florida, and it is quite crucial here.

 

Shockingly the race is closers in states wherein the 2016 elections, Mr. Trump had won. As per records, North Carolina and Georgia have voted Republican in nine out of the last ten presidential elections, but this year there has been a close race in the areas. Likewise, there is a close race in Ohio and Iowa, where Trump had won from Hilary Clinton in 2016.

Arizona is a state where only Democratic presidential candidates have won in the last 70 years. In Texas, Trump has an advantage of 5% above his opponent. Tens of millions of Americans have already cast their ballots through postal and early voting. The figure is high and majorly due to the pandemic situation. National polls claim that Mr. Biden has a significant advantage. The reason for this figure could be that White Seniors are in his favor. The same category that helped Mr. Trump to win in the 2016 elections. The age group has drifted from Trump to Biden because they have disliked his handling of the pandemic. The Latino voters favor Mr. Biden as shown by the votes in the states like Arizona and Florida. However, compared to the results of 2012 or 2016 he has received less votes than Obama and Hilary Clinton.

Either of the two needs 270 electoral votes to win the presidential position. The states are showing a clear favor of one of the candidates, but then there are few states where the difference is too close.
